Where do you keep.............

.........Your locking wheel nut fitment????

I've got my new winter wheel set up ready to go on, but can't find where the locking wheel nut fitment is in the car. I'm just hoping that there's a place where it's kept that I haven't looked yet.

If the worst comes to the worst, what are my options to get the locking nut off???

Open boot. Look to the right. There is a small piece of trim which you lift up and your tow eye and locking wheel nut key should be there. If not then head down to your local friendly dealer who will supply you a new one.

feel a bit of a fool here, but I open the boot, look to the right and the battery cover is there, I don't see any other moveable bits of trim. On the left I have a warning triangle in a blue plastic case and also a flap which drops down for where a cd changer goes maybe??

Feel like a right plonker now, I lifted out the battery cover, dropped it and could then see the locking wheel nut fitment when the cover was upside down.

My mrs always says I never look no further than the end of my nose for things

Thanks for your help
